First the Ingram announcement and now the RBH move have fuelled speculation that MB Technologies' CEO Leo Baxter is seeking an exit strategy from the group.
In fact, the opposite is true, says Baxter: "This is not part of an exit strategy. With these opportunities, I am more involved in the company – not less involved.
"With Ingram Micro and RBH, there have been rumours that MB Technologies will be swallowed, which are not true. These are great opportunities for the company."
Baxter hints that, after living abroad for a number of years and commuting to the South African office, he may be relocating back to home base full-time.
